Shopkins 9th Birthday

9.17.2016 || My daughter got into Shopkins last year with her 3rd grade friends. So when I saw Shopkins party items on clearance at Walmart last spring, I had to buy them. And I'm thankful that I did since Walmart didn't have much lately. Party City had a pretty decent collection and they're pretty much everywhere nowadays that I am sick of them yet gravitate toward them at the same time. Here are some photos from our birthday celebration.

Don't forget to click on the {heart} over at Catch My Party :)

my cousins-in-law did the final set up

the kitchen and the guest

I couldn't find a local costume character for hire that has Shopkins
so I asked my coworker who did a Cinderella gig looong time
ago for another coworker to dress up as Jessicake, one of the
Shoppies doll. She already owned an 80s prom dress. I just bought
an aqua wig and fuchsia shoes from China to complete the look.
With some glue gun and felt, I embellished her cupcake shoes,
and also made the cupcake head accessories two hours
before the party lol
